Yeomans Corner is a fine family home dating back we understand to the 1930s. Over the years owners have extended and modernised to create an attractive, spacious house. The versatile well-proportioned accommodation is ideal for family living and entertaining with a light and airy atmosphere.
All the principal rooms are access off the central hall with a fine oak floor. This flooring extends into the dining room, with an open fireplace and glazed folding doors opening into the study. The light family room, with electric fire in an oak surround, is an ideal winter ‘snug’ with views over the garden. The over 20’ sitting room is an elegant room with an open fireplace in a mahogany surround, granite hearth and decorative open shelving.
A pair of double glazed panelled French windows open to the tile floored conservatory which wraps around the side of the house.
The kitchen/breakfast room, with a range of windows overlooking the garden and beyond, is comprehensively equipped with oak fronted units, double ceramic sink and with marble worktops throughout. At its heart is a red gas-fired AGA with overhead lighting. Off the kitchen is the good sized utility with the Baxi gas fired boiler and plumbing for washing machine. Beyond, next to the back door, is a second ‘garden’ cloakroom.
On the first floor are four bedrooms, all with attractive and extensive views over the gardens. The master bedroom, situated over the sitting room, again is over 20’ and has a good range of fitted cupboards with an en-suite shower room with extensive heated mirror. The house altogether is unusually well fitted with storage and over the landing is a pull-down ladder giving access to the generous loft.
The house is approached off the lane over a sweeping expanse of gravelled drive which leads around to the front of the house. There is a double garage with useful room over. The gardens and grounds extending to almost two acres and are a very important feature of the property. Yeoman’s Corner is set above the borders and lawns which has created an extremely beautiful and varied area of garden.
Each section is devoted to a particular variety of plant including a shaded hosta garden, hazel copse under-planted naturally by bluebells, azalea border, a fine catalpa tree, a magnificent copper beech and acer and mature rhododendrons. The whole is mainly enclosed by high laurel hedge and separated by areas of level and undulating lawn.
To one side, shielded from the house by hornbeam hedge is the large potting shed (formerly a garage) and a greenhouse.
